Stepping into Carolyn Evans’ house is like stepping into a gallery. Every corner of her Natick home is filled with artwork, hers and her husband’s, recent and from years past. It contains her journey as an artist, from sculptor to painter, within its walls.

When something as intangible as art or performance has to be publicized and advertised, the challenge lies in convincing the community that a valuable experience is being offered.

We met up with Brandon to discuss his position at ASP and his thoughts on reaching out to the community.

A day both sunny and cool is a rarity during a New England summer. Last weekend falls under that magical category, which was lucky for Somerville’s Artbeat 2014, which has been occurring annually for 25 years under the direction of Somerville Arts Council.

The last time artscope caught up with Robert S. Neuman was in 2007, when his retrospective, Robert S. Neuman: Selected Work 1954-2007, was being shown at the Beard/Weil Gallery at Wheaton College.
At 87 years young, Neuman is still a busy man. Since his retrospective at Wheaton, he has had many themed shows concentrating on specific bodies of work and a number of retrospectives.
